Zavalla's Ellermann breezes through first week of 'Top Shot'

Zavalla's Dustin Ellermann survived the first week of "Top Shot" with relative ease, winning both competitions in which he participated.

Ellermann is one of 16 competitors from around the nation competing in the show on History Channel, which is a contest of marksmanship.

Ellermann took part in an individual target competition with a Smith & Wesson 500 Mangnum, winning it to earn a spot on the blue team, which consisted of winners of the first competition.

In the team competition, Ellermann was the first person on his team to shoot at a target 75 yards away with a sniper rifle. He hit his target on the first shot and his team won the competition, saving anyone from Ellermann's team from possible elimination.

"Top Shot" airs on Tuesdays on History Channel at 9 p.m. The winner gets $100,000.

Amanda Hardin was the first person eliminated from the third season of the show.
